Portland and Weymouth Bay - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

This panoramic image of Weymouth Bay was taken from a layby on Castletown, the road that leads to the Weymouth Bay and Portland National Sailing Academy (WPNSA). To the left of the bay is the shingle bank that joins Portland to Weymouth, commonly known as Chesil. Weymouth itself is on the far side of the bay. There are numerous sailing boats moored in the bay. To the right of Weymouth the coastline continues along past Ringstead Bay, Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove and Kimmeridge Bay. You can see the white chalk cliffs which are famous for the coastal path. The WPNSA itself is the blue buildings to the left of the storage tanks at the base of the cliffs of Portland Bill.
